Pumps are used in a wide range of applications, including water supply and treatment, oil and gas production, chemical processing, food and beverage production, and mining. They are also used in various HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) applications and in the automotive industry for engine cooling and fuel systems.

Pump bearings are an important component of a pump system. They are designed to support the rotating shaft and provide a low-friction interface between the rotating and stationary components of the pump. Pump bearings are typically made of steel or ceramic materials and are designed to withstand high loads, temperatures, and speeds.
